According to the report, the board has announced that if any student is unhappy with their result, they will be given a chance to appear for exams at a later stage. However, the date of these exams has not been announced yet.
The results were announced by the Rajasthan Board Chairperson DP Jaroli, News18 reported.
No Exams, Results Based on Marks of Previous Exams
The Rajasthan board did not conduct the exams for Class 10 students, originally scheduled to begin on 18 April, owing to the pandemic.
The results of Class 10 were based on the results of exams conducted in Classes 8,9, and 10.
The students results were calculated based on an alternative evaluation criteria.
The state board said it would follow a 45:25:10 formula, with 45 percent of the weightage given to the marks obtained in Class 8 board exams, 25 percent weightage to the marks obtained in Class 9 and 10 percent weightage to marks obtained in Class 10.
As the results of the Class 10 examination were evaluated based on an accumulation of the scores the students scored in the last three years, the topper list will not be released this year as the exams have not been conducted due to COVID19 pandemic. The Board will not release any merit list as well, reports said.
